Rookie Card Upgrade: 1966 Topps Jim Palmer
Jim Palmer is kind of one of those Hall of Fame players who easily gets overlooked. Palmer also gets passed over quite a bit in the hobby. I once purchased this raggedy 1966 Topps Jim Palmer rookie for under $10, a place holder in my collection:
During a recently eBay spree I managed to find a gorgeous BVG 5 that looked dead center, and was not creased. It came with another card, but for about $40, the pair seemed like a deal, especially since the Palmer was exactly what I was looking for and I figured I could sell the other card for about half of what I paid for the lot.
Welcome home, Jim.
